Industry backs John’s mission
9th March 2022Tweet
John Green, Claims Consultant at Clegg Gifford & Co Ltd, has secured more than £20,000 in support from the UK’s insurance claims sector for his mission to provide essential provisions to those fleeing war-torn Ukraine.
John, along with three friends – Dean Hallissey, Mark McIlveney and Max Lazarou – developed the plan only last week and within 24 hours had received support to the tune of £8,000. News of John’s mission subsequently spread and in his words “things rapidly snowballed” with support coming from all corners of the insurance sector.
Documenting the mission on LinkedIn, John said, “The backing I have received from industry peers has been incredible – I can’t thank everyone enough for their support.
“We’ve got everything from thermal hats and gloves, sleeping bags, teddies and travel cots to police trauma kits. The generosity of so many has been incredible.”
John has mustered up more than 20 volunteers helping organise everything before he drives one of two, fully laden vans through northern Europe to an aid centre in Lublin, Poland where the onward journey to the border has been coordinated with the Red Cross.
John is set to depart on his mission at around 8pm Wednesday 9 March.
